Hi Ladies! I was wondering what you think. I am getting married a Sunday in may but I am not sure which date is better. I was going to do May 20th, but then I thought why not the Sunday before memorial day because everyone will have off the next day, but I live about 20 minutes from ocean city and atlantic city New Jersey which are popular tourist spots..do you think traffic will be too bad for that weekend? Any advice greatly appreciated! 🙂

I, personally, wouldn’t want to have my wedding the same weekend as a holiday. Esp being that close to a big city.

I would still do it memorial day cause im not the hugest fan of Sunday weddings and would love that there is a day off after. Just inform people that there will be traffic and to pad their travel time; they will plan accordingly. I dont think it’s worth changing your date over.

Our wedding is tentatively May 26, 2012 and that is Memorial Day weekend so I say go for it! In the end, it’s your wedding so do what you want to do…. but you could talk it over with the “most-important-have-to-be-there-wedding-can’t-happen-without-them” people and see if they would be ok with Memorial Day weekend. That’s what we did. Hope this helps 🙂

We’re doing the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, too! And I’m from right outside of DC, so I’m sure there will be lots going on trafficwise too. I figured I’ll just send out my Save-The-Date Cards early and let everyone know to plan accordingly… I know everyone I’ve told so far loves the idea of having the Monday off afterwards.
